MRC at London Model Engineering Show

We are back at Alexandra Palace with a stand at the LMEE on 20-22nd January 2017. Our theme this year is "Electric Power", which includes a section of our new OO gauge model of Ingatestone which has 25kV overhead electricifcation. As usual our team of members will be demonstrating the creation of model locomotives, structures, track and layout elements in various scales - tramway modelling will also be represented. Below is a taster of some of the models on display.

We look forward to seeing you there on stand P, and again at the London Festival of Railway Modelling on 25/6 March.

2017 Committee

At our 75th AGM on 1st December 2016, Leslie Bevis-Smith stood down as Chairman after six years in the role. Over that time the Club has continued to move forward at the start of our second centenary, with growth in membership, work starting on several new layouts and improvements to Keen House.

Tony Cox has been elected as Chairman, and Mike Lloyd elected to replace Tony as Deputy Chairman. David Aplin remains as Treasurer and Membership Secretary, and Elizabeth Livett was elected as Secretary following her co-option into that role earlier this year.

The details have been udpated on this site, and email addresses reassigned. More details will be in our next Bulletin.
